The Mansfield helps put an extra ‘sting’ in the tail of local junior Ice Hockey club
Sutton Sting Ice Hockey Academy has been awarded a £1,000 donation from the Society’s Community Support Scheme.
Based at Lammas Leisure Centre, the junior ice hockey club offers young children the opportunity to experience a great team-building sport and learn new skills. This donation allows the club to purchase a full Goaltender kit, giving the children the chance to try all positions across the team, and find their place.
Luke Newman, Sutton Sting Ice Hockey Academy, explains:
“The Academy is run by volunteers, made up of ex-professionals, parents and former students. We play across the UK, in both competitions and friendly matches and we’d like to give these young children everything they need to take part and open the sport to all – regardless of background and family situation.”
Anna Grabas (pictured), Financial Accountant at The Mansfield, commented:
“Competitive sports can be expensive and helping to make them accessible to the wider community by providing the club with necessary kit, is valuable to those in our local area. We are thrilled to have been able to support The Stings Academy and look forward to seeing how the junior team progresses.”
